Hector is a Savannah Monitor. These guys often do not live very long in captivity due to improper nutrition. They are insectivores and should eat nothing else. In captivity feeding only insects can be very expensive so many people feed them larger food items such as rodents and eggs.
Since these animals are very opportunistic they will eat just about anything offered to them. That is because in the wild they need to food drive in order to find enough insects. Unfortunately in captivity this leads to obesity and fatty liver bad enough that more don’t live longer than a few years.
The Snake Haus bug room is where we are growing Hectors food! We have colonies of two different kinds of roaches and a super worm farm. These are still just getting started but all three bug farms are doing well and starting to produce babies. This will ensure that we always have enough food for Hector.
